Malaysia continues to experience growth as a developing nation and as an emerging economy in transition. The desire to transform is reflected in the country’s dynamic Economic Transformation Programme, designed to further drive productivity, innovation and growth in trade, industries and the economy as a whole.
In this latest issue of What’s New From Malaysia, we have featured many Malaysian companies that are making waves in the global scene with their innovative industrial products.
Some of the products include security glass, inter-locking flooring, insulated fire-rated doors, poly steel pipes and smart construction solutions. Interestingly, many companies in this segment are recognising safety as an important aspect of innovation.
For example, products such as flooring material are manufactured with the ultimate safety in mind and fires can be effectively contained using insulated fire-rated doors. In the inside pages, you can also find a feature on an innovative water heater system that no longer poses any immediate risk of electrocution for the home users.
Besides, we have also shone the spotlight on medical products such as bottle caps that can prevent overdosage and IV drips that allow enhanced mobility for patients.
This edition will also provide you with an informative look at many other Malaysian innovation in interesting segments such as technology & design, biotechnology and food.
Salam sejahtera and happy reading!
